Ronald's Donuts, and plenty of salad stuff from the Whole Foods salad bar, I was happy to find two restaurants in Mandalay Place that currently offer vegan menus as part of "World Vegan Month."
Hussong's Cantina had a vegan menu that included burritos, tacos, enchiladas, and a delicious taco salad with a crispy rice tortilla, roasted corn and black beans, Gardein "chicken," and Daiya cheese. The service was friendly, and the guacamole was superb.
Next door to Hussongs, Slice of Vegas Pizza was serving up delicious pizzas with Daiya cheese on a thin, crisp crust. The highlight of my meal there, however, wasn't the pizza but rather the "Not Your Mamma's Garlic Bread," which would more appropriately be called "pesto bread," as it came completely slathered in fresh pesto. The bread was served in a hot cast iron skilled with a whole head of slow-roasted garlic on the side. My husband was quite enamored of the vegan chocolate cake on the dessert menu, which was exceptionally moist for restaurant cake (we were told it had lots of avocado in the batter), and was served in a giant slab drizzled with chocolate syrup and sprinkled with cookie crumbs.
As is often the case when I travel, I overindulged and came home feeling a bit vegetable-deprived; my first task when I got home was grocery shopping for enough fresh veggies to enjoy giant salads all week. Fortuitously, my Tofu Xpress was delivered while I was away, so I'll be having fun with pressing and marinating tofu for my salads this week...I'll have a review up of the Tofu Xpress once I've done some experimenting.
